Measurements of multicomponent microdroplet evaporation by using Rainbow Refractometer and PDA

Measurements of multicomponent microdroplet evaporation by using Rainbow Refractometer and PDA The evaporation process of a multi-component droplet has been studied utilizing optical diagnostic techniques. Investigation focused on the measurements of the different volatility mixtures and the variation of the mass fraction within a droplet of different components. The method for determining the temperature of a multicomponent droplet containing nonvolatile and volatile compositions has been proposed. For a droplet with two volatile compositions, such as water and ethanol mixture, the model of evaporation for droplet temperature measurements was also suggested based on the experimental data. Droplets with different mass fractions of each component under different temperature conditions were measured utilizing a primary rainbow refractometer and a recently improved phase-Doppler analyzer. It was also found that the droplet temperature could hardly reach its saturation temperature within the droplet unlike explained by previous researchers. The effects of temperature gradient within an evaporating microdroplet and the temperature discontinuity on the evaporating surface have been discussed. Experiments in Fluids Springer Journals
